There are already LOTS of libs out there for such utility functionality for GL (gl, assimp, etc). What would be nice is something that collects it... wait we already have that on www.opengl.org: http://www.opengl.org/sdk/libs/.
There is a short list in the Wiki and the link to ASSIMP is in there http://www.opengl.org/wiki/Related_toolkits_and_APIs
